Once, HiDude, Trey and I had a whole WEDDING PARTY searching the pavilion they were partying at for a geocache! They all had their heads under the benches, and we moved their wine bottles to stand so we could check the rafters. They thought it was the coolest thing ever!
We DNF’d! OUCH!

Speaking of...where was your sister when that happened?
Welcome to the crazy hobby!

Wow! What a response! Thank you for the suggestions - I have a good
idea of what GPS unit someone (hopefully) will be giving me this

I also got an email from a Michael J., publisher of Geocacher
Magazine - he's interested in doing a feature story focused on my
posting about how my sister and I found out about geocaching!
